Hello, Bees! I’ve been dress shopping twice now and tried on some really amazing dresses. I’m still waiting to have “that moment” but I’m such a critical/terrible decision maker that I’m honestly not sure if I will have it the first time. I’ve tried on 5 dresses that I really liked so far, and I figured why not put them up here and stage a poll! Sorry the images are so big.
My venue is Higgins Armory Museum and I’m anticipating pictures being taken during the ceremony from above, so I want something that will look dramatic!
1) Geneva by Maggie Sottero
2) Abilene Rose by Maggie Sottero (the sample size was too small, hence the bunching in the middle – it looked much better in person; I may pay $50 to have the shop order a large sample size for my refitting in May)
3) Style D1239 by Essense of Australia
4) Style W206 by Allure
5) Mystery dress! I was so upset by the time I changed out of this dress at the salon I went to that I decided to hell with it, but now after seeing the pictures I *really* like it. Closest I could find was this one by Mori Lee, but the belt is wrong.
If anyone has an idea of what the last dress is, I’d love you forever. I may just call the bridal salon to ask, but I really don’t want to go back there if I can help it.

The mystery dress is my favorite on you 🙂 (not sure what brand it is though)

All the dresses are gorgeous on you! Just so you know, I never had “that moment”. I don’t think everyone does, so don’t worry about it if you don’t 🙂

I think the mystery ballgown and the Geneva are stunning! But what dress do you like best?

I have to say… I’m all for the mystery dress. It looks stunning on you!! How did the salon upset you? (if that’s not too weird for asking)

@ladyartichoke: I posted about it yesterday, if you’d like to go read. I’m less upset now that a couple days have passed, but still annoyed (especially about not writing down/looking at who made the dress!)
@StarryNight2011: I’m honestly leaning toward the mystery dress, which is weird because I always thought tulle skirts weren’t what I wanted. But there’s something so magical about it and I loved how lightweight it was. I also really liked Abilene Rose – I think in the right size it would kill.
I do really, really love the back of the Essence gown, too. It looks like a waterfall.

I sooo have to goo with the mystery dress. Maybe you could just call the bridalsalon and ask them which brands they sell and hit the internet and go on a dresshunting 🙂

@MissCalifornia: I saw it, I just really need to pay attention to avatars more often! Sorry for being crap
There were really mean, it’s a shame they have such a nice dress really. Because it does look great on you!
Could someone go and have a look for you? Hoping though that one of the bees will be able to identify it for you, there are some brilliant dress detectives on here 🙂

Love the mystery dress on you! I don’t know if this will help you find it, but it appears to be inspired by Lazaro LZ3108.

I’m going against the grain here, but I really love Abilene Rose on you! I think the back is stunning, and from your writing it sounds like you really like it too!
